Shade Trees and Evergreens Wedding : Annie and David

Last weekend, I headed up  with my trusty second, Karen, to one of my favorite venues, Shade Trees and Evergreens in Frederick, Maryland, to meet up with Annie and David for their amazing wedding.  Karen and I started at Annie’s parents house in Walkersville where the girls were getting hair and makeup done and to grab some details and then Karen headed to the venue to get the boys’ pictures. Braving the intense July heat, David and Annie opted to meet for a first look over by the lake at Shade Trees, which was a lot of fun to capture.

I love how Annie and David pulled so much of their personalities into this wedding — from their love of the Caps, to a very funny cake topper, to Annie’s love of stars — it’s so great to see a couple so happy to be unfailingly themselves.  They are very cool people and such a delight to work with.  I wish them all the best, happily and beautifully in love, just as they are.
